    EMOM - sets of 5X 12, 5X 11, 5X 10 (attempted) press-ups, floor to lock to floor. Time in secs remaining for each min.

    41 - 41 - 40 - 40 - 40

    38 - 37 - 38 - 32 - 30

    30 - 24 - 10 - fail - no attempt

    I'm blaming the poor performance on a day spent shifting a set of heavy extension ladders around and between the cars, while putting up Xmas lights along the guttering - ho ho ho...

    Chin-ups, sets to failure, set + rest = 4 minutes, 12 sets: 5 - 4 - 4 - 4 - 3 - 4 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3. So 42 in total.

    Some of those 3s almost felt like they could have been 4, but then the subsequent 3 would probably have been a 2.

    Great effort Mike. I've eschewed chin-ups and their like for a few weeks now. A bit hesitant after previously sore elbow injury. I'll have to try a few testers to see!

    It has been one of those hectic, discombobulated days today, and a rush to do any exercise of much note.

    Still, I was able to churn out 36 floor to lock to floor press-ups this morning, to set the standard; the same at around lunchtime; and again, just now, before heading off to bed.

    Not the most efficient core-ex but ticked the box anyway.

    Oops - a day late - I was within minutes of starting these yesterday when my partner reminded me that I had to sort out my evening meal - oven roasted pasta with veggies - delicious, but it takes time to sort out.

    Chin-ups, sets to failure, set + rest = 4 minutes, 10 sets: 5 - 4 - 4 - 4 - 4 - 4 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3. So 37 in total.

    Dumbbell bicep curls. 2 X 12.5 kg. Simultaneous lifting with both arms. Steady rather than 'proper' eccentric lowering tonight and this improved subsequent sets. 2 mins break between sets, with 10 press-ups performed between each. Curl Reps were to failure, per set.-

    28 (10) - 21 (10)- 14 (10)- 12 (10) - 11 (10)- 12 (10)- 12 (10)
